MINUTES OF JOINT MEETING OF TRUSTEES' COMMITTEES 

FARM AND HORTICULTURE. 
Court Room, Town Hall, Amherst, 10:00 p.m., May 10,1912. 



PRESENT: Messrs. Gleason, Ellis, Howe, Frost, Ellsworth. 
Mr. Kenney and Professors Waugh, Foord, Sears, 
and White were also present. 

Trie meeting was preceded by a public hearing on a petition 
presented to the Trustees, requesting that the present rules 
prohibiting the sale in trie town of Amherst of college grown 
products be repealed. 

In view of the sentiment expressed at the nearing, on 

motion of Mr. Frost, it was Sale of 

college 

VOTED: That these joint committees recommend to the proaucts 
Trustees that the rules as adopted in June, 1907, 
regulating trie sale of college products in the Town 
of Amherst, be continued, and that the heads of 
departments be authorized to sell produce in the 
Town of Amherst at wholesale prices. 

A lengthy discussion followed relative to the hours of 

labor to be observed at the college for common laborers. No 

action was taken however. 



HIRING Oil SALE OF COLLEGE PRODUCT S. 

The Trustees' Coroiaittees on Farm and Horticulture held a 
public hearing in the Court Room of the Town Hall, Amherst, Mass., 
at 7:30 p.m. Kay 10, 1912. The object of the hearing was to con- 
sider a petition, signed by approximately 1 85 citi- 
zens of Amherst, requesting that the policy pursued by the col- 
lege, relative to the sale of its products in Amherst, be modified. 

There were presentrMr. Charles A. Gleason, Hon. J. Lev/is 

Ellsworth, Mr. George H. Ellis, Mr. Elmer 
D. Howe and Mr. Harold L. Frost of the 
Trustees; Professors 7/augh, Foord, Sears, 
White, Yeaw and Graham, and Mr. Kenney of 
the college faculty. In addition approxi- 
mately 100 citizens of Amherst attended 
the hearing. 

Mr. Charles A. Gleason presided. 

The chairman announced that those favoring the sale of the 

college products in the Town of Amherst would be heard first. 

Following is a brief outline of the testimony submitted: 

Professor Smer3on . 

He does not care to interfere with the success of the farm- 
ers or otiier producers in the community, but is anxious to be 
able to procure good farm and garden produce, and is willing to 
pay a fair price for the same. The college should not, however, 
put produce on the market at a low price in competition with 
other produce. He enjoyed for years the privilege of purchasing 
produce of the college, and experienced considerable inconvenience 
when he could no longer do so. The citizens of Amherst should 
enjoy the same opportunities of purchasing college produce as 
residents of other towns. He has never been able to procure 
elsewhere as good produce as from the college. The price cf 
college produce should he kept high, so that the competition 
will not injure the local dealer. 

Mr. Frank L. Loqmis . 

The people of Amnerst snould have the privilege of buying 
college produce, but the college should charge prices commensurate 
with the value of the produce sold. The objection to the sale of 
college produce in the town has always been due to the fact that 
the college at one time under sold current market prices. 



Mr. Kidder . 

Better produce can be obtained from the college than from 
any other source in the town. The peop] e are willing to pay 
more for this produce because it is worth more. 

Mr. E. A. Thompson . 

Inasmuch as the people of Amherst are paying extra taxes 
because of the presence of the agricultural college, they are 
entitled to all possible advantages to be derived from the col- 
lege in the purchase of its products. Resentment has been felt 
by the people of Amherst against those who agitated the present 
prohibition of the sale of college produce, and resentment has 
been felt against the college because its Trustees acquiesced in 
the demand of certain dealers. 

Mr. Thomas Smith . 

The demand of the better trade in the town is for agricul- 
tural college products. People are willing to pay more for these 
products than for those of other producers. Under the present 
ruling, practically any citizen of Amherst can obtain college 
products provided he i3 acquainted with a student or an em- 

ployee of the college. This condition operates unjustly against 
those citizens who are not so situated. 

Mr. V/. H. Phillips . 

There is not enough good fruit ; market garden produce 

raised in Amherst to supply the present demand. It is unjust 
that the people of the town can not enjoy the privilege of pur- 
chasing the best produce available. 

T."r. Atkins . 

In reply to the above statement, Mr. Atkins testified that 
an acquaintance of his in Belchertown had found it difficult to 
dispose of fruit of superior grade in Amherst. 

Mr. Da kin . 

It is narrow policy for the Town to pursue to deprive its 
citizens of privileges, which tend to make the town more at- 
tractive to new residents. The agitation against the sale of the 
college products in town was ill advised and shr rt-sighted . The 
sale of college products is not likely to actually compete with 
local dealers. 

Mr. Herbert S. Carruth . 

The present situation is illogical and unjust to the citi- 
zens of Amherst. No unfair competition will be involved if the 
college iisposesof its products on a proper basis. 



3. 

Dean George D. 01d3 . 

Dean Olds asked a question as to how many dealers had bene- 
fited by the present arrangement. Ho reply to this question wa3 
made. 

Mr. Whit comb . 

Any one would be willing to buy good produce of any dealer 
in town if the same cou^d be obtained. No one about here do e3 
raise as good produce as ^the college. Citizens have the right to 
purchase of the college, and should not be deprived of it, unless 

the element of unfair competition enters into the situation. 

Mrs. Geor ge D. Olds . 

The public markets of the Town should be allowed to furnish 
college products to its patrons. Local producers do not furnish 
a regular supply for the markets. 

Mr. George C utle r, _Jr . 

Summer people are often attracted to Amherst with the hope 
and expectation of being able to procure the best in the way of 
fruit and vegetables. 

Dr. i Frederick Tucker man . 

As a general principle, all the towns should stand in the 
same relation to the agricultural college. The citizens of Amherst, 
however, have special rights to the privileges offered by the 
college, because of the fact that when the college was located 
in Amherst, a large sura of money was raised partly by general 
taxation and partly by personal subscription for the aid of the 
college in its early days. 

Mr. A tkins . 

The college should be managed so as to bring the greatest 

financial return to the state. Its products should be put on the 

market at a fair price, and if this is done no complaint need be 

made from local dealers or others. 

Mr . Y/hitcpmb . 

Apparently people of other towns have benefits derived from 
the agricultural coll ege, which residents of Amherst do not enjoy. 

Mr. Ha rold L. Fros t . 

■Mr. Frost asked Mr. Thomas Smith why retailers in Amherst do 
not purchase college products and furnish them to their patrons. 

Mr. Thomas Smith . 

Mr. Smith replied that after the present ruling was made 
this was done, but that opposition was r? ised bj, certain dealers. 



4. 

Mr. E. _ A. Th ompson. 

Mr. Thompson stated that if the agricultural college deals 
with outside buyers it cannot v/ell sell at wholesale to Amherst 
deal ers. 

Mr. Charles A. Gleason . 

Mr. Gleason expressed the opinion that not as much produce 
is now raised as was the case before the present regulations 
were put in force. The Trustees of the College took the former 
action only because of the pressure of public sentiment as ex- 
pressed in the hearings held five years ago. It is the business 
of the college to melee the farm pay as well as possible, con- 
sistent, however, with the interest of the farmers in the com- 
munity. 

Mr. 3. A. Phillips. , 

People of the town have been inconvenienced and disappointed 
because of the operation of the present rules governing the sale 
of college produce. 

A few others added brief testimony, much along the lines 
already indicated. 



Mr. Ki ngman . 

The agitation in former years grew out of the fact that the 
college was under selling the retail prices of the town. The 
question should be settled fairly to both parties, and if this 
is done there is likely to be no opposition on the part of any 
to the selling of college products in the town of Amherst. 

Mr. Johnson . 

A fair arrangement should be made by the college, so that 
other producers would, not be injured by the competition. There 
is no objection to the college selling its surplus in Amheist at 
a fair price. 

Mr. Atkin s . 

Mr. Atkins stated a specific instance, where a few years 
ago the college under sold the current market. 

Mr. E. A. Thompso n. 

The peopl e are not protesting against prices charged in Am- 
herst but of the inferior quality of products that can be obtained 



5. 

Mr. II. N. Thomson. 

The Amherst market is an extremely small one f< I 
grown fruits and vegetables. The college formerly controlled tie 
local market for such produce, and is likely to do so again if 
no restriction is made as to its sale. The price for such produce 
is lower in Amherst tnan elsewhere.. The price charged in Amherst 
shou] d be the Boston price plus express one way. 

Mr . Kingman . 

The Amherst market is 30 small that the college could easily 
control it unless some restrictions were placed upon the sale of 
college produce. 

M i- . J . I ew i s E l Is worth . 

Mr. Ellsworth stated that in the hearings on the subject form- 
erly held in Amherst, no such arguments as are now presented were 
offered in support of the old arrangement of disposing of college 
products . 

Mr. Johnson . 

Mr. Johnson inquired what arrangements other agricultural 
colleges make with respect to disposing of its products. No one 
replied to this question. 

Mr. J. lewis Ellsworth . 

It is difficult to satisfy all by any arrangement which may 
he adopted. A middle ground may perhaps be reached, whereby fair- 
ness may be done to all. The Trustees will attempt to discover 
what this position is. 

Mr. II. 1:. TViomson . 

Mr. Thomson called attention to the fact that the Amherst 
market was different from a city market. 

Mr. Atkins . 

Mr. Atkins also expressed the opinion that the Amherst market 
is much cheaper than other markets. 

Mr. Ki n gman . 

Mr. Kingman stated that better relations never existed betweai 
the farmers and the college than now. nothing should be done to 
injury in. any ^ e farmer and thus injure the college. The col- 
lege must grow on a foundation which will be helpful to the farmer. 

On the question whether the college should sell its produce 
in Amherst at fair prices, practically every one present voted ir. 
the affirmative; no one voted in the negative.

PRESENT: Messrs. Bowditch, Ellis, M. I. Wheeler, Gleason, Draper,

The question of the working of the so-called eight-hour law 
was quite thoroughly discussed. It was unanimously agreed that the 
College must comply with the law in letter and in spirit, and, fur- 
thermore, if it should be found legal to arrange to employ labor- 
ers by the hour, the number of hours to be determined by each laborer, 
that this ruling should be invoiced only in those cases where the 
eight-hour system works great inconvenience, as with teansters, 
herdsmen, firemen on Sundays, etc., end also in certain emergencies. 
The college officials were given authority to carry out this plan, 
in case a satisfactory ruling is made. It was also the opinion of 
the Committee that the rate of pay per hour, in case this plan is 
adopted, should be for the present substantially the rate imposed 
through the working of the eight -hour law. 



MINUTES OF MEETING- OF COMMITTEE ON FARM AND HORTICULTURE 

Boston, December 19, 1906 . 

VOTED: That the College Departments employing labor are au-

Placed at 17-1/2 j, per hour.

PRESENT: Messrs. Bov/ditch, Ellis, Howe, Ellsworth and Butterfield. 

The matter of employing labor under the eight-hour law, with 
reference to the coming season, was discussed, Profs. Brooks and

the College must continue to comply with the lav; in letter and in 
spirit, and that advantage should be taken of the ruling of the 
attorney general only in cases where it seems absolutely necessary. 

The College officials therefore were instructed: 

(1) To employ all labor by the hour, on the basis of an eight- 
hour day. The standard rate for common labor is to be fl.50 for the 

eight -hour day.

upon more than eight hours a day, the standard rate shall be the rate 
for the extra hours.

Professor Tompson also presented a score card which he 
considered valuable in assisting the comparison of the various 
types for the purposes in question. This was entitled, The 
Influencing Factors in Determining the Location of the Market 
Garden Field Station 

(a) Unalterable factors 
1. Location 



- 5 - 



Nearness to the Centre - Boston 
Nearness to the main highway 
Nearness to adequate transportation 

facilities 
Nearness to a freight station 

Forty per cent for Location 
2. Site 

Lay of the land . 

Character of the soil 

Variety of the soil - upland and lowland

Forty per cent for Site 

(b) Alterable factors 

1. Condition of the soil 

Cost of putting in shape to give results 
Time required 

Fifteen per cent 

2. Drainage 

Five per cent 

Some discussion of this score card followed with objections 
by Secretary Wilfrid Wheeler. General discussion followed by 
Trustee Frost and Secretary Wilfrid Wheeler about methods of 
getting at the question. Mr. M. Ernest Moore asked how long the 
appropriation would be available. He spoke for the Varnum Frost 
property, mentioning the following facts: The soil is very satis- 
factory for the purposes in question; variety of soil is good; 
the land has been used for market gardening for years; location 
is central, easily accessible, and there are three old green- 
houses on the property which might be used for the present. 

Mr. Harry F. Arnold , president of the Market Gardeners' 



- 6 - 



Association followed. He stated 'that Mr. Stone's property 
in Watertown - Waltham, did not have the right kind of soil 
for the purpose, it is too heavy, hut the location is very 
good. He believes that the Frost property is what might be 
called a second-hand proposition, with altogether too many 
old buildings and old greenhouses Which would never be very 
satisfactory for the work proposed. The location is good. 
He believes that the McPhee property of North Lexington is 
as good a proposition as we have £s a second-hand proposition. 
Mr. Arnold believes that the Concord land is right in type and 
very suitable for use. He would place his vote between the 
Varnum Frost property of Belmont and the Concord property. 

Mr. Howard voted for the Varnum "Frost property first; 
the Stone property, Waftertown, second; Pierce property of 
Arlington third. 

. Esty followed with preference given to the Varnum 
Frost property of Belmont, if sufficient money was available 
to obtain this; second choice the McPhee property, Horth 
Lexington; third choice Concord. 

Mr. Frank Wheeler then gave his opinion as almost iden- 
tical with that of Mr. Arnold, stating that if the appropri- 
ation was sufficient he would vote first for the Varnum Frost 
property, although he thought the buildings were of very little 
value, and after some discussion this phase of the objection 
was considerably emphasized to the extent that Mr. Wheeler 
believed that the buildings were a distinct detriment to the 
property. His second choice would be Concord. 



- 7 - 



Mr. Stone refused to give an opinion "because of his 
•interest in the land in question. 

Mr. Burnham's first choice was the Frost property of 
Belmont, with Stone's second and Concord third. 

Professor Torapson stated that he would vote first for 

the Frost property and second for the McPhee property, hut 

that he "believed that the ideal location would "be on some of 

Mr. Wyman's land on Lake Street, particularly the section 

known as the Estate. 

Considerable general discussion followed with the 
r 
request from President Butter-field that the party visit the 

Mcphee property on the return trip, which was done. 

Mr. Arnold emphasized the damage done to the Frost 
property by the lack of care given it during the past few 
years, and stated that he thought that the increased cost 
of caring for the property due to the weed seed allowed to 
accumulate would he at least ftlOOO per year for ten years. 
Some discussion followed. 

Mr. Wilfrid Wheeler asked what it would cost to put 
the "buildings in shape to use, referring particularly to 
the greenhouses, and Mr. Moore replied that he thought it 
would require at least $2000. 

President Butterfield called for a vote of the faculty* 
members present on the first and second choices for the Field 
Station . 



Professor Waugh stated that as for as he could see 
the Varnum Frost property was all a fraud. He did not see 
anything in it all for our purposes. He placed Concord 
first because of price and quality of the land and the l£c- 
Phee property second. 

Professor Hurd voted for the Varnum Frost property 
as number one choice, Concord property second; and Mr. Kenney 
"believed that the Varnum Frost property was first choice and 
Johnson Brothers of North Lexington, second. 

Dr. Brooks voted for Concord only. 

The meeting adjourned at 3.45 p.m.

To consider the question of sewers on the College Estate, con- 
nection of the same with the Town of Amherst. 



The committee met at the Amherst House the evening of Decem- 
ber 20, 1910, and. discussed the 1 .: in a I way. There 
were pre; ent, the Chairman Mr. M. P. Dickinson, Mr. Willi ' -ler, 
the President and the Treasurer of the College. 

The next morning the committee met ointment the select-

necessary in order to secure the greatest efficiency for both the 
town and the College, but without raising unnecessary questions 
before the Legislature.

continued services of Mr. Johnson of Boston, formerly engineer of 
the State Board of Health, in determining the best plan for sewage 
disposal in that part of the town adjacent to the college proper 
and that Mr. Wheeler for the Trustees would confer with Mr. John- 
son in regard to a preliminary plan for such cooperat Dens 
desirable. 

The committee adjourned subject to the call of the Chairman.

Professor Tompson submitted revised plans for 
the administration building of tne Station and 
reported that Mr. Ritchie had not yet secured estimates 
on the building. Professor Tompson also reported 
that estimates on greenhouses v/ere somewhat above the 
amount fixed for such expenditure, but he thought 
that if the College made its own purchases of 
material and erected the greenhouses, the amount 
required above the original apportionment would not 
be greatly exceeded. 

There was some discussion of the best form of

be on the basis of written projects duly approved, in ac- 
cordance with existing project methods, by" those members 
of the staff of the institution who are concerned. 

6. All maintenance funds should be apportioned by the 
Trustees on the basis of approved projects. 

7. Ordinarily, estimates will come from the Field 
Superintendent, approved by the administrative officers 
concerned, for equipment, salaries, maintenance, etc. The 
Treasurer shall have a separate fund and a separate ac- 
count for the Field Station. Bills will be paid in ac- 
cordance with the general plan of business organization.

tion work and other forms of extension work, projects 
should be approved by the Director of the Extension 
Service. In tests and in research or experimental work 
to be done at the Station, projects should be approved 
by the Director of the Experiment Station. The Head of 
the Department will naturally correlate the various act- 
ivities of the Station through the appropriate adminis- 
trative officers of the College. The Director of the 
Experiment Station will be responsible for correlating 
in the usual way the services of various departments of 
the institution that may need to cooperate in problems 
connected with the work of the Station.

made up of members of the Boston Market Gardeners' Asso- 
ciation and possibly some other members of the staff than 
those immediately connected with the Department of Market 
Gardening. 

10. The Trustees' Committee on Horticulture should be 
designated as the Trustees' Committee in charge of the 
Market Garden Field Station.

evening of Tuesday. There was no objection.

the Faculty urging the desirability of excursions for the students for

etc., and requesting that an arrangement be made by which the College

Boston, Mass.. June 8,1911. 

President Kenyon L. Butterfield, A.M., 
Amherst, Mass. 

My dear President Butterfield: 

At the semi-annual meeting of the Trustees of Boston 
university held Tuesday, June 6, the following recommendation was 
adopted by a unanimous vote:- 

Whereas the agreement between the governing Boards of 
Boston University and the Massachusetts Agricultural College, made 
in 1875, has been faithfully kept until the present time, and Where- , 
as by the experience of thirty-six years it has proved that there 
can be little or no practical benefit to either institution by con- 
tinuing the somewhat slender alliance, it is recommended that, with 
grateful appreciation of the uniform courtesy and good fellowship 
shown by the President and Trustees of the Agricultural College to- 
ward the representatives of Boston University, the connection be- 
tween the tv/o institutions be terminated. 

It is also recommended that a copy of this vote be sent by 
the Secretary of this Board to the President of the Agricultural Col- 
lege at Amherst, Mass., with the request that similar action be tak- 
en by his trustees at their next meeting, and that when such action 
is taken the original agreement be considered void. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) George S. Butters, Sec. Board of Trust.

President Butt erf i eld.

offer of another position.. The President raised the ques- 
tion whether the Trustees would "be willing to pay Professor

After discussion, it was

The President presented some memoranda concerning plans 
for study of a better organization of the College.

College was present at dinner to meet the members of the 
committee . 

Prof. R. W. Ileal was presented to the committee, and a 
general discussion ensued regarding rural journalism as a. 
major subject. While no vote was taken, it seemed to be 
the sense of the committee that courses in rural journalism 
should be developed, but that the major work should he de- 
ferred for the present. 

President Butterfield raised a question as to the feasi- 
bility of a leave of absence in the near future. It was 

Lea Ye of

PRESENT: Messrs. Wheeler, Bowker, Dewey, Hosmer,

conditions, the chief of which was the privilege 
of going abroad during the second semester of the 
first year, partly for the purpose of studying ad- 
vanced agricultural teaching, his salary to continue 
but he to pay his traveling expenses. The question 
was broached whether it was a good precedent to per- 
mit a newly engaged member of the force to take a 
leave of absence with pay so soon after his en- 
gagement. After considerable discussion, it was 

VOTED : That the President be authorized to 
invite Dr. Charles E. Marshall to 
become Director of the Graduate School 
and Professor of Microbiology, at a 
salary of $3600, the same to begin Employment of 
September 1, 1912; that a leave of 
absence without pay be granted to Dr. Charles 
Doctor Marshall from February 1, 1913 
to a date not later than September 1, E. Marshall, 
1913, principally for a study of con- 
ditions and methods of advanced agri- 
cultural teaching abroad, with such 
allowances for traveling expenses and 
compensation for services as may be 
agreed upon by Chairman Wheeler and 
President Butterfield; and that Doctor 
Marshall be requested to present to this 
committee, as soon after his return as 
may be convenient, a written rep®rt con-

MUTES OF MEETIN G OF TRUST EES' COMMI TTEE ON COURSE OF 
STUDY AND FACULTY. 



City Club, Boston, Sept. 20, 1913, at 1:00 p.m. 



PRESENT: Messrs. Wheeler, Bacon, Richardson, Butterfield; 
Professor John Phel an, Director of Short Courses 
was also present. 



The President introduced Professor John Phel an as 
Director of Short Courses, and he made a general statement in 
regard to plans and projects for the development of short 
course work, more particularly during the ensuing collegiate 
year. 

The first item for discussion was the resolution of 

the State Legislature in regard to a two-year course of study 

for students who have attained the age of 17 years and who 

possess the educational qualifications necessary for admission 

to any approved Massachusetts high school. A point was made 

that in view of the new draft laws, it was doubtful whether 

many boys of the age of 1? would enter such a course. After 

further discussion, it was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Trustees that the college 

offer a course of study that will meet the intent 
and spirit of the Legislature of 1918 as embodied 
in the Senate Resolution 374. 

And further, it was 

VOT ED : To recommend to the Trustees that beginning with 
the ensuing college year, there be offered sub- 
stantially a four months' course for students 
having at least a grammar school education, and 
who are not less than 15 years of age, if in the 
judgment of the faculty of the college, such a 
course seems to be feasible and practicable durinjg 
the war emergency. 

The Director emphasized the great importance of pro 

viding for women students of agriculture, in view of the new 



draft law. 

It was 

VOTED: To recommend to the Trustees that the President 
and Director of Short Courses he authorized to 
employ a woman suitably trained in agriculture, 
whose official connection would he ivith the 
Short Course staff, but who would also assist in 
the agricultural training of women taking the full 
college course, at a salary of not exceeding 
$2500. per year. 

The Director presented a list of short courses that 
it seems desirable to offer during the coming year, enh racing 
courses for women, particularly in the training for the 
management of land army camps for farm labor, and for the 
canning and preserving of food. Also courses for the so-called 
reconstruction work for returned soliiers; special courses for 
unclassified students, to experiment with certain short courses 
in or near the city of Boston, and also the enlargement of the: 
regular winter and summer schools of agriculture. 

It was 

VOTED : To recommend to the Trustees that the Director's 
plan for the development of short course work 
during the ensuing college year be approved as a 
general plan. 

The Director presented estimates of necessary ex- 
penditures for short course work during the year 1919, and 

i t was 

VOTED: To recommend to the- Trustees that the Legislature 
be asked to appropriate the sum of $15,000. for 
the support of short courses during the fiscal 
year beginning Dec. 1, 1318. 

It was 

VOTED: To designate the Chairman of this committee, Mr. 
William Wheeler, as a sub-eoiimittee on short 
courses with the understanding that the President 
may request another member of the committee to act 
in conjunction with Mr. Wheeler, if it is so desired, 



3. 



The President stated that if the attendance at 

short courses increased very rapidly, it would soon be 

necessary to have an assistant director of short courses, who$e 

chief services would be looking after the welfare of the 

students and performing such other administrative duties as 

would naturally develop with the growth of the work. It was 

VOT ED : To authorize the President and the Director to 

recommend to this Committee a candidate for Assistant 
Director at such time as they deem wise. 

It was 

VOTED : To authorize the President to recommend to the 
Trustees from time to time the personnel of the 
Short Course staff. 

The President discussed the possibilities of the 

need of establishing the position of Assistant or Associate 

Professor of Rural Sociology to assist Professor Phelan in 

the work of his Department, in case the Short Course work 

develops rapidly. 

The President reported the following changes in the 

academic staff since the last meeting of the Committee:
